Elkins Top Predictor In Weekly Pace Race

ACRR News:

Paul Elkins was the top predictor in the Atomic City Road Runners Club weekly Pace Race in Rendija Canyon with a 3 second error off his predicted time.

The Atomic City Road Runners Club is a family-oriented running and walking club that meets every Tuesday April through October for a pace race in which members predict their own time.

Anyone can choose to run or walk for one mile or three miles, and the slowest walker can be a winner if his or her finish time is closest to that predicted.

Other accurate predictors in Tuesday’s race:

  • Clay Moseley with a 7 second differential;
  • Lindsay Gibson and Jackie Marr tied at 15 seconds off;
  • Luke Gibson, 6, with a 21 second difference; and
  • William Strother, 9, at 24 seconds off.

In the one mile distance, Levi Gibson, 7, was the first finisher recording a 7:49 and Mila Moseley, 9, was the best female at 8:34.

Luke Hetrick just edged out Travis Gibson for top finisher in the three mile distance with a 23:54 time and wife Adrienne Hetrick was the first female at 25:56.

Next week’s race is 6 p.m., Tuesday at Pinon (Rocket) Park on Sherwood Boulevard across from Smith’s in White Rock with a “Staggered Start” race where participants start depending on their prediction from slowest to fastest with the goal of everyone finishing at the same time. One and three mile paved courses will be available.
